Editorial: Bullying and Suicide Risk: Restructuring Prevention, Identification, and Treatment to Address a Global Mental Health Crisis

Bullying is a global phenomenon with significant mental health consequences. Although bullying prevention programs have garnered attention over the last several years, the results of these programs have been mixed, at best. As Koyanagi et al.1 highlight in this issue of the Journal, the consequences of bullying can be dire, particularly when they occur during a critical developmental period. Using the Global School-based Student Health Survey, this paper reports on a sample of over 130,000 youth age 12-15 sampled in a structured manner across 48 countries with a range of geographic representation and some socioeconomic diversity.

This article includes a brief history of how the senolytic suicide gene therapy company Oisin Biotechnologies came about. Oisin Biotechnologies was one of the first senolytics biotech startups, of which there are now many, one of the first longevity industry companies, and launched at a time in which it was still quite hard to persuade investors that treating aging as a medical condition was a legitimate line of work. That was actually just a few years ago now, 2015 as seen in the rear view mirror, and matters have changed rapidly since then.
